Mr Children: Toubousha

January 11, 2009

Toubousha

The first thing I remember is the sunset in the park
The quiet afternoon after I became a lost child and cried
Among the adults saying kind words
I felt the size of my life
It’s been two years now, since she disappeared
Saying nothing will happen if you keep thinking about this and that
I tried to say just one kind word
But I realised I couldn’t say anything

If we could have been together forever and ever it would have made me happy
But there are times when I feel alone, wherever, wherever I go
A runaway, running to a dark tomorrow

The place changes and you smile before my eyes
Do you think at all about how free you are?
Sweet air comes drifting my way
I take you as you are

I have happiness, happiness here, so I’m OK
Sadness lies all over the place, like mines
Follow me so you don’t step on one

If we could have been together forever and ever it would have made me happy
But there are times when I feel alone, wherever, wherever I go
A runaway, running to a dark tomorrow

Runaway…

ROMAJI

Saishou ni omoidasu no wa kouen no yuugure
Maigo ni natte naita ato no shizuka na gogo
Yasashii kotoba wo kaketekuru otonatachi no naka de
Boku wa jinsei no saizu wo kanjita
Arekore kangaete mite mo hajimaranai wa, to
Kanojo ga satte itta no wa mou 2 nen mo mae
Yasashii kotoba no hitotsu demo kakeyou to shita kedo
Damatteru shika nai to kitzuitanda

Itsumademo itsumademo isshou dattara ureshii kedo
Dokomademo dokomademo hitorikiri da to omou toki ga aru
Usugurai ashita ni mukau toubousha
Tokoro wa kawatte me no mae de kimi ga warau yo
Kuttaku ga nai no ka nani mo kangaetenai no ka
Yasashii kuuki ga koko ni hora nagarekonde kiteru
Kimi no mamma de mitomete shimatteru

Yorokobi wa yorokobi wa koko ni aru kara daijoubu da
Kanashimi wa sokorajuu ni korogatteiru jirai no you ni
Fumanai you ni ato wo tsuite oite

Itsumademo itsumademo isshou dattara ureshii kedo
Dokomademo dokomademo hitorikiri da to omou toki ga aru
Usugurai ashita ni mukau toubousha
